Need Answer

My husband was in a motorcycle accident and suffered head trauma. Now I think that he going through depression. He is always crying and wants me to gave him some space. I don't know what to do. Can someone please help?

Sorry to hear about your husband. If your husband has asked for space you should honor that. However, get more clarification as to what it means to "give him some space". Once you clarify that, let him know that you are there to support him in whatever capacity he needs. Even while you are giving him his space, it will be good for him to know that you are waiting in the wings, ready to help him in any way when he is ready.

Have you asked him why he is so upset and/or depressed? Perhaps he isn't ready to talk about it but, again, let him know you are ready to hear him and support him when he is ready.

Does he have a concussion? Have the doctors checked him out thoroughly? If both physical and mental symptoms continue to exist, I would encourage him to seek professional help on both accounts.

I wish I had more for you. Perhaps other readers will chime in and can give you some additional advice.

I wish you all the best,

Dana
